Hey everyone! Check out today's new blog entry!
House of Horrors
A lot of good advice on there.
Meowmy says she can relate to that, even without evfur having had kitties with IBD...Suki used to get all pounced upon when she was having a seizure, she had to be in a cage if meowmy wasn't home because we couldn't give her her own room...sigh...it even freaked out the dog-guy.
It was an informing read. We do that either take both kitties to the vet at the same time, or rub them all over with the other's scent, that really does work.
Somewhere we read to put a tiny drip of vanilla on the backs of each critter that was supposed to dull their smell ability until they got used to each other again, but that seemed to drastic and chemical in its approach.
Never heard of using vanilla. Don't know if that would be a good idea like you said. I think the rubbing with the towel does work pretty well. Oh poor Suki, that must have been scary for her.
We think it bothered meowmy more, cause when she had those, she would be rather out of it for several hours at a time.
OMC!!! That's a long time! How scary!
The seizures only lasted a few seconds, but her level of consciousness went out the window when she had them she would go into a kind of stupor that she could hardly be aroused from, even if meowmy tried to, but she would breathe normally...and she was incontinent with those, it was a severe neurological problem, the vet thought it was a stroke or perhaps an inner ear issue, because when she was 'normal', she would walk in circles, but she would purr, and knead and eat ok, during the 'good times'...the episodes just kept getting more and more frequent, and the severity increased, too, despite medicine, and time spent in the vet ICU...5 days one time, OMC, ouch went meowmy's pocket, MOL!
Goodness, Meowmy thinks anyone who has had kitties over a number of years could likely pen a book or two about the issues they had to deal with!
Here in Catsterland, the diaries do a good job of documenting a lot of it, so we can refer back to it, or keep a log of things, etc.
Sorry for the blabbing...MOL!
MOL. That's so sad that she had to live like that. Your meowmy was a wonderful mom to do what she had to do to care for her, even though it was super expensive. My mom can understand that for sure!
Thanks Alex. We wish that meowmy had known about this pawlace a whole lot sooner...
